It doesn’t get much better than winning $27,850 and a gold medal on two steers in your home state in front of a packed house filled with family and friends. That’s exactly what 19-year-old Cash Robb of Altamont, Utah, just did at the $562,500 Utah Days of ’47, which ended July 25 in Salt Lake City.
“I’ve always dreamed of winning the gold here,” said Cash, who’s no stranger to the World Champions Rodeo Alliance winner’s circle, having also won Cowtown Christmas last December in Fort Worth. “I’ve wanted to come to this rodeo since I was a little kid, and have always watched it on TV. This is one of the big rodeos everybody dreams of winning—especially if you grow up in Utah.”
Cash won his performance with a 3.95-second run on his gray horse, Daky, with his dad, Justin Robb, over on the hazing side. Cash won Monday night’s Gold Medal Round in 4.38 seconds, and was joined on the podium by silver medalist Mason Couch of Cassville, Missouri, and bronze bulldogger Sam Powers of Sonora, Texas. Catch all the action from the Utah Days of ’47 Gold Medal Round on July 31 at noon Eastern on CBS.
